Track: BioMechanical Design

BioMechanical Design deals with the interaction of mechanical technology with biological systems. This means investigating human movement, perception, and control characteristics from a mechanical engineering perspective, and developing both the mechanical design skills and the knowledge of control theory necessary to develop robust and adaptive systems that can interact effectively with the messy, soft, and unpredictable world of human beings. In contrast to the more clinically oriented MSc programme in Biomedical Engineering, BioMechanical Design focuses on the engineering challenges of learning from biological systems for engineering applications.

BioMedical Engineering or BioMechancial Design?

In contrast to the more clinically oriented MSc Programme in Biomedical Engineering, this track focuses on the engineering challenges of designing bio-inspired robots, fine-mechanical systems, automobille driver support and training systems, haptic interfaces, and tools for top athletes. Students will receive an advanced education in the design and engineering of robotic devices, mechatronic design, control engineering and biological principles. Students are encouraged to select courses from other departments, faculties or even universities, if appropriate.

Master students in Delft can choose between two programmes: the master's programme BioMedical Engineering (BME) and the Mechanical Engineering track BioMechanical Design (BMD).
